Bhujangasana – Cobra pose

Happy 2018. Happy New Yoga Year 🙂 May it bring love & joy to you, as well as lots of yoga!  To prepare for the new year ahead, I like to reflect on my favorite people and moments of the year before. For the new year, I promised myself to practice as well as teach yoga as often as possible.

Yoga is such a wonderful ‘tool’ as I like to call it: as it helps you to take good care of oneself. So if you want to simply try a class, renew your practice or continue your ongoing practice, feel free to join my classes this year.

ail des ours

Wild garlic – Ail des ours – Daslook

Ingredients (4p):

  • 1-1,5kg medium sized potatoes
  • Big bunch of collard greens (‘bettes’ in French or ‘warmoes’ in Dutch)
  • 2 leeks
  • 6 medium/ large sized mushrooms
  • 400g vegan bacon (I used ‘De Vegetarische Slager’ available in The Netherlands and Belgium)
  • 1 (or more) garlic cloves

  • 1 tsp of wild garlic
  • 2 tbsp of nutritional yeast

  • Salt (Himalayan or sea) & black pepper

 

Preparation

    on the plate

    Peel the potatoes and boil them in slightly salted water in about 20′ or until tender (put a fork in them to check).

  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  3. Slice the leeks & collard greens wash and set aside.
  4. Clean the mushrooms with tissue paper (no water!), slice and set aside.
  5. Prepare the garlic (sliced or use a garlic press).
  6. Heat up some oil in a non sticky wok; stir fry the leek for a a few minutes until slightly brown; add the mushrooms, stir fry for another few minutes; add the collard greens, stir fry for a few minutes; add the  vegan bacon and mix in all the dry spices (not the nutritional yeast!), stir fry for another few minutes; lower the heat.
  7. Once the potatoes are done, pour out the water, rinse with a bit of cold water and slice the potatoes in equal quarters.
  8. Add the potatoes to the vegetables/ bacon mixture; add the garlic; add the wild garlic; add the soy cream and the nutritional yeast. Mix well. Then turn of the heat.
  9. Grease a medium sized oven dish with some oil.
  10. Fill the oven dish with the content of your wok, make sure the soy cream covers the mixture of vegetables, bacon & potatoes.
  11. Put the baking dish in the oven and back for about 30 minutes.

Serve like that or with a green salad.

Buy your yoga pass this month at student rate @ Sampoorna Yoga Studio

_MG_2010December is a month when good intentions often wane. Everyone is busy with shopping and preparing for St Nicholas and Christmas, there’s the year-end rush at work, it’s cold and dark… so you don’t get to do as much yoga as you’d like. To help you keep up in the busy month of December Sampoorna Yoga Studio wanted to extend a special offer to you:

Everyone is eligible for the student discount (reduced rate) until 24/12/2017 – and this on all yoga passes, both unlimited and multi-class. For example :

  • 10-class pass – 90€ (instead of 135 €)
  • 20-class pass – 150€ (instead of 220 €)
  • 1-month unlimited pass – 75€ (instead of 110 €)

A significant saving, and a good incentive to keep your practice going! See you soon in class! Check out my schedule in December.
